Odd color rendering in Firefox 30

When looking at http://imgur.com/gallery/Ksmj6yi what should be dark blue in the Finnish, Swedish and French flags render as a vivid purple.
When I save the image and view it in Shotwell the color renders as a dark blue.
It isn't every dark blue and I'm not noticing other odd colors.
When I looked at https://www.cia.gov/library/publicat...ftheworld.html the colors render correctly.

Could someone look at the page and tell me if they see the same color rendering that I'm seeing?
Thanks

Re: Odd color rendering in Firefox 30

Interesting. I am seeing the same as you I think - some of the blues are more purple than blue.

I copied the image and viewed it with the Gnome Image Viewer and the blues render correctly.

I opened the image in GIMP and it renders as per Firefox ie purple. I used the colour picker to grab the colour - it is R,G,B = 63,72,204. This actually displays as blue in the GIMP colour dialog, but if you draw with it you get the purple colour.

That's very old fashioned thinking.
The current model is that it's holographic nested virtualities of turtles, all the way down.

Reproduced what you describe. The color picker shows a dull dark blue, but when you paint it into an image you get a vivid purple. Interesting that Gnome shows the same purple as Firefox but Shotwell doesn't. Thanks for the test.

Update: Mozillazine Forums provided a clue through an old bug report.

Setting the switch to zero caused the color to render as blue in Firefox. This suggests the color management profile in the Fedora/Gnome distro needs some adjustment.
